FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

We offer eye exams at both of our locations. You can do this from the comfort of your own home with just a laptop and an iPhone. Simply click to request a time that works for you with one of our optometrists or call us directly.

How long does an exam last?

Most exams last about 30 minutes. However, if you choose to have your pupils dilated at the time of your exam, your appointment could last up to 40 minutes. (Just heads up: Dilations can cause your eyes to be sensitive to light for several hours after your exam. Best to book your appointment for a time when you can rest up afterward!)

It may be possible to use your own frame, depending on your prescription and lens option you choose.
